Actually, I checked the headlight laws in Minnesota... there's really nothing that dictates height, only that they have to throw "white" light, and not be aimed too high.
Except as hereinafter provided, the headlamps, the auxiliary low-beam lamps, or the auxiliary driving lamps, or combinations thereof, on motor vehicles shall be so arranged that the driver may select at will between distributions of light projected to different elevations, subject to the following requirements and limitations:
(a) There shall be an uppermost distribution of light, or composite beam, so aimed and of such intensity as to reveal persons and vehicles at a distance of at least 350 feet ahead for all conditions of loading.
(b) There shall be a lowermost distribution of light, or composite beam, so aimed and of sufficient intensity to reveal persons and vehicles at a distance of at least 100 feet ahead; and on a straight level road under any condition of loading none of the high-intensity portion of the beam shall be directed to strike the eyes of an approaching driver.
There is, however a statute for "auxiliary low-beams" and they have to be at least 24" off the ground... but not specifically for the "headlamps".
This was one of my ideals for changing the headlights on my GT2. The light assemblys I think are a replacement set for a Lexis. Molds would need to be made from the body sections before they are cut out, and plexiglass molded to those forms.
There is, however a statute for "auxiliary low-beams" and they have to be at least 24" off the ground... but not specifically for the "headlamps". Kinda weird actually.
I looked up the code for Ohio on headlights, there is a bunch more data but this gives the height limits on the headlights.
Chapter 4501-15 Motor Vehicles-Lighting
4501-15-01 Headlights. (A) Aim of headlights – Headlights shall be aimed in accordance with the society of automotive engineers (hereinafter referred to as S.A.E.) lighting specifications code and shall be constructed and installed so as to provide adequate and reliable illumination and shall conform to the appropriate specification set forth in the SA.E. recommended practices or S.A.E. standards for electric headlamps for motor vehicles or sealed-beam headlamp units for motor vehicles and for motorcycles and motor-driven cycles the headlights shall conform to the appropriate specifications set forth in the S.A.E. standards for motorcycle and motor-driven cycle headlamps.
(B) Height – Every headlamp upon every vehicle, including every motorcycle and motor-driven cycle, shall be located at a height measured from the center of the headlamp of not more than fifty-four inches nor less than twenty-four inches to be measured as set forth in section 4513.03 of the Revised Code.

Actually there was someone on the old board that put headlights likes Wyns drawing and it looked like poo poo. The problem comes in because the plexi cover for the lights dont match the contour of the body and stick out. I was going to mold in Hayabusa headlights on mine in front of the wheels with a custom molded cover.
I went out and measured the front tire and it is 22.5 inches in height. To install my lights at the 24" minumn they would need to be moved as shown.
Still looks pretty good.
You can not use the light lenses that come with the headlight assemblys like Brian says. You need to make molds of the body. You can heat plexiglass to about 200 degs and shape it to the molds. Then cut to size, then cut the holes in the body to match the lens shape. You can use your wife's oven but don't let her catch you doing it. ;D
I have seen the tail light on one of the late model of Cadillac. It looks like it has about the same curvature of the out side of the GT2 rear fender. That way you get a side marker light along with a tail light.
